Hi I have a i7-4790 CPU with a GTX 1070 and it is taking my system 1 hour to render a 2 minute video, why? The video is imported from AE and is littterally 2:39 long. I have checked and media encoder is barely using my CPU or GPU. I understand rendering can be CPU intensive and I am planning to upgrade in the future but it wouldn't take this long running on a potato.

Judging from your output preview thumbnail, it looks like you have a lot of effects going on. It's possible it simply takes that long.
Low CPU usage does seem odd though. Can you check your AME settings that you are using Metal or OpenCL vs Software?
Hey thanks for the response I am using the Mercury playback engine GPU acceleration. (CUDA) I understand that effects can drastically increase the time of a render but this wasn't that effects heavy. Even if it was it ended up taking 2 and a half hours to render which would still be to long. Once again thanks for the help I really appreciate the support.
